Ranking: The great wooder ice flavor debate
It’s just another day in the city of Philadelphia and we have one thing on the brain … water ice. Whether it’s from a famous chain or your favorite corner place, there’s never a bad time to discuss. While we’re all staying home and doing our part to social distance, and it seems like Philadelphians really enjoy talking about food — let’s debate the best flavors.
You may agree with these rankings, you may not. Feel free to argue with us on social media.

This is one of the most refreshing flavors and is essentially frozen lemonade. It’s kind of boring though — you know it and I know it.
Definitely a last resort option, but if you were to get it, you wouldn't be mad.
You only like cherry if you’re someone who doesn’t complain about cough syrup. If it comes with the little fruit chunks? Just throw the whole thing away.
I don’t make the rules, I just enforce them. If this is too much of a hot take, that's fine — since it'll at least melt the water ice and I won't have to have it.
Has anyone actually tried vanilla before? I attempted to collect evidence of people trying it, but could not find anything — even though it's on just about every menu. If you’re craving vanilla, it might be best to go get some ice cream/custard.
At this rate, it seems like something worth trying just to experience it ... you know, for science.
6. Bubble Gum
You either want your teeth to rot ... or you’re five years old. Another flavor that falls into this category is cotton candy.
10/10 dentists would not recommend.
5. Fruit Punch
Whoever decided to create this — I just wanted to say, thanks.
This is childhood in a cup. If you try this and aren't instantly transported to a third grade pizza party at a bowling alley, did you even try it?
4. Mint Chocolate Chip
If this is done right, it’s an elite flavor. If it’s not … it basically tastes like you got chocolate stuck in your teeth and you’re brushing them with mint toothpaste.
It's worth the risk every single time.
Much like mint chocolate chip, if this is done right, it’s elite. At first, cold and wet chocolate ice doesn’t sound too enticing ... actually when it's worded like that, it sounds downright terrible. Somehow, though, it's a solid choice.
It's like magic ... but I won't ask questions.
Just like the fruit, you’ll either really like this flavor or reeeeaaaally hate it.
Have you ever met a person who doesn't like mango? They cannot be trusted.
1. Blue Raspberry
If a genie could grant me three wishes … one of them would be an unlimited supply of this. It's so good that no one could even find the words to explain it ... it just is.
Get what you like. Who cares what other people think? Seriously, it's just a snack (a very good one, for that matter).
Don’t take this post too seriously — we’re all trying to find things to make our days a little lighter. Just think of a nice day, wooder ice in one hand, a pretzel in the other — perhaps at Citizens Bank Park while you’re enjoying life and a ballgame. We’ll get there soon enough.
